Doctoral Studies at the BGSH

Graduates who wish to carry out their doctoral studies at the BGSH, must be matriculated as a doctoral student of history at the Philosophical-Historical Faculty of the University of Basel and have a primary or secondary tutor who is a member of the BGSH. Submission of an application is a prerequisite for admission.

The doctoral studies programme at the BGSH follows the guidelines for faculty doctoral studies (fakultäre Promotionsordnung) dated 2/3/2017. The independent development of a thesis lies at the centre of the doctoral studies course.

While completing their doctorate, members of the BGSH will also perform curricular tasks to gain a total of 18 credit points (CP).

According to our new internal regulations from 22 November 2018 these are as follows: 

Doctoral candidates, who joined the BGSH before 22 November 2018, can still follow the old curriculum:

    a) Participation in conferences, workshops, colloquiums etc., with or without the presentation of a personal paper
    b) Organising conferences, workshops, working groups etc.
    c) Participation in soft skill courses
    d) Academically orientated internships.
